Diablo® III

Is it me or is Blizz's perception of yards off?

Like for Overpower it says it reaches out 6 yards but when i use it it only hits a few people around me and 6 yards is quite long, its nearly 2 basketball hoops away and on my screen theres no way thats how far it goes. ALSO, with the pick up radius with a fleeting shrine it goes to 20 yards (60 feet) but theres noooooo way i'm pickin up gold and stuff that far away. So what's up with that am I the only one who thinks somethings wrong ?

They wanted to keep yards for some odd reason but should have used farblewarbles as to not confuse people.

It is possible that everyone and everything in Sanctuary, the Burning Hells, and the High Heavens exist on a larger scale, much like Giant Land from Super Mario Brothers 3. Why they would use Imperial units of measurement is beyond me. According to the image I have linked below, male Demon Hunters stand somewhere between 18 and 21 feet tall. lol

Your character is 9-12 yards tall if I remember correctly.
